Remember when I insisted that everyone watch Couples Therapy? So, yeah, I forgot. But my DVR picked it up last night so It’s finally time! Meanwhile I read today on TMZ that Flava Flav’s last Chicken and Waffle franchise is about to go belly up. :( First up is Flava Flav and his fiancée they were together during all the Flava Flav shows where he was hooking up on TV. She says in her talking heads she has no access to money or bank accounts. Flava interrupts her to say that she does. She is crying like victim of domestic violence already, and as if on que, there it is the police incident report where he was arrested for domestic violence. This might be too serious to be funny. FF is already talking about frying chicken. I guess this is how the house catches on fire. I can’t decide if Flav is mentally ill or on drugs or both. Flav also refuses to be seen without the huge clock around his neck. Ever.
Tyler and Caitlynn are there for premarital therapy. They plan to get married soon after the taping is over. I haven’t heard that has happened yet. Supposedly, even keeled Tyler has a bad temper. I’ve never seen that before but I suppose with his genetic background it’s possible. Caitlynn has lied to Tyler in the past (when she was 16) and so they are claiming trust issues. I honestly believe these two are just there to earn money for their wedding. Flav almost immediately tells them that they should not have given up their child for adoption.
Chingy and Temple have been together for five years. He’s a rapper, she is an actress. He lives in St. Louis and she lives in LA. She thinks he might cheat. Really, Temple? You think? Chingy is a moron. I made that assessment in 30 seconds. Like super stupid. And he is not particularly hot. I have no idea what this woman is doing with him.
And it’s Joe Francis and Abbey his girlfriend of four and a half years. Abby says it is hard to date the owner of Girls Gone Wild. She’s pretty. Why does she date this creep? They pulled up with a moving truck full of suitcases or something. Abby has an eating disorder. He is moving in furniture and the whole nine yards. Joe tells Abby to make the bed. She doesn’t do it fast enough and he calls her away from the cameras and tells her not to be a fucking bitch. Raise your hand if you are surprised that Joe Francis is an asshole who treats his girlfriend like shit? I see no hands.
On the bowling trip Liz and Flav don’t even make it to the location before they are not speaking to each other. Liz says Flav is psycho and if it were not for Karma she would have been gone a long time ago. Liz seems a little whackadoodle too. I think she is on something to deal with Flava. She is sitting on the floor underneath the counter. Liz refuses to participate and goes outside to pout. Tyler goes into counselor mode like he has always done. Flava starts getting drunk. Which they usually don’t allow on this show, I guess since they are at a bowling alley and the therapy hasn’t started yet, he will get away with it. I’m sure we will hear about whatever else these two are on sooner rather than later.
So basically, that is the setup episode and things should start getting interesting next week. Did anyone watch?
